Re: "Backcountry" tablet for marine use?

I read all of their website a few days ago. It isn't clear that ruggedized has anything to do with making it resistant to water.

Battery life is less of a concern to me on a sailboat since the boat has hundreds of amp hours of lead acid batteries that can efficiently keep tablets topped up.

The Sony Xperia Tablet Z (10"/Android/$500) which is waterproof seems like a more interesting option for a boat. I wish they made a 7"/$300 version.

I'm no longer participating on SailNet.
